Fulfilling the brief


Congratulations to Ravensbourne students Melissa Naikambo and Arron Wilson who both received commendations at the You Can Now (YCN) Student Awards

Launched in 2001, the YCN awards celebrate emerging creative excellence, encouraging participants to work to live briefs written by partnering organisations.

Competition briefs are diverse and involve multinational companies and charities, ranging from Santander to Save the Children.  Melissa, a 3rd year Digital Advertising and Design student, chose to answer a brief set by Syfy UK which asked students to ‘Get the sci-fi audience to love the Syfy brand for being the most passionate home for sci-fi’. In contrast, 2nd year Graphic Design student Arron worked with paper manufacturer Fedrigoni to ‘Design a marketing tool to promote our latest range of uncoated black papers and boards: Sirio Ultra Black’.

Arron and Melissa will now join fellow winners at the YCN awards ceremony to celebrate their achievements. In addition to this all winning submissions will be published in the YCN student annual. 15,000 copies of the annual will be distributed to creative agencies and education institutions internationally.
